I am a 24 year old woman with PCOS working nights as a registered nurse. I was overweight basically my whole life until I found keto. For those of you who do not know, keto refers to a ketogenic diet or a diet of 65% fats/30% protein/5% carbs. I basically eat meat and vegetables with every meal, usually cheese or some other fat and very limited other carbs (mostly veggie carbs). I have been on my diet since November 11, 2011. Today is January 28, 2011. I weighed in most recently on the 24th and have gone from 190 lbs (at 5'6") to 171.4 lbs in that time.

I love carbs, I used to live on pop-tarts and cereal and cookies and junk but I've learned to live without them. Plus, there are many great low-carb substitutes one can make.
Hang in there. It really is amazing what happens when you follow it.
